Dr. Badiei’s delightful collection of Stories Told by ‘Abdul-Baha is a timely addition to the wealth of materials on the ministry of one who was characterized by His father, Baha’u’llah, as the perfect Exemplar of His Faith. In the context of the Iranian culture stories are used to make a point: moral, philosophical or spiritual.
And no one has ever better used the medium for those purposes than the Master. For the reader it is a joy to have them available in one volume. – Nosratollah Rassekh
“These stories by the Master are an introduction to living a spiritual life pleasing to the Creator of all humankind. Gleaned from the written record of stories told over a period of many years, they provide life-changing perceptions of spiritual realities that often escape the modern mind. Stories hold the key to unlocking the human heart by revealing the eternal verities that can remove the barriers blinding one’s spiritual insight and hearing, and they can create a taste for the spiritual things in one’s soul, a taste that leads one to explore the great wealth of the spiritual world. Let the reader reflect and meditate on these matchless gems of wisdom and discover the love of God enshrined therein. We owe the compiler of this wonderful contribution to those who seek to find the spiritual path leading to eternal happiness.” – Jack E McCants, Ph.D.
